Abstract

The U.S. Navy has reversed an earlier decision to close its Winter Harbor communications center, which performs communications security assistance for the country's military services and supports navigational aid and air-sea rescue missions. The installation, built 60 years ago, employs 307 and has a budget of more than $4 million. U.S. senator William Cohen pressed to keep the facility open, and has suggested that Navy communications activities in other countries be relocated to Winter Harbor.
